Distribution Ready Reference

December 16, 2015

Distributions are nifty. Some are easy, like the bell curve. Nice and symmetrical. Others are less regular. If you want to see what type of distribution your data generates, navigate to “Common Probability Distributions: The Data Scientist’s Crib Sheet.” Is it necessary to understand the mathematics underpinning each curve? If you are an MBA, the answer is, “No.” If you are more catholic in your approach, you can use these curves to poke into the underbelly of the numerical recipes. Nice write up. It does not include the Tracy Widom distribution, but the beta distribution may be close enough for MBA horse shoes.
